Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 114300 Black Or White Dial Watches Hands-On

Two new dial tones for Rolex’s section level men’s watch  the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 reference 114300  were appeared at Baselworld 2018. White and a dark dials were added to the arrangement of four other Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 watch dials that were appeared when the reference 114300 Rolex Oyster Perpetual was recently appeared in 2015 . Rolex decided to present the 114300 with purple, olive, blue, and dark dial tones regardless a couple of years prior. For 2018 the more traditionalist and seemingly more adaptable dark or white dial alternatives are accessible for the Oyster Perpetual 39. This is uplifting news for those hoping to purchase a fresh out of the plastic new, passage level Rolex that didn’t need any of the first four colors.

At 39mm wide the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 is the biggest of the Oyster Perpetual models that additionally exist in more modest sizes. As an easygoing or dress watch, the 39mm breadth works, however on the off chance that you need to go up to 40mm wide, you can put in two or three hundred dollars more for a Rolex Air-King . The most genuine competitor to the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 in Rolex’s assortment (as I would see it) is the Rolex Explorer 214270 ,what has a similar 39mm wide case and development. So, Rolex costs the Explorer at $850 USD more on account of the Explorer’s complex lumed dial and in light of the consideration of the Easylink 5mm “comfort extension” in the arm band. The Oyster Perpetual 39 dial with its mallet hour markers and straight hands is a smidgen more rich, not as lively, and I think it claims to a somewhat unique crowd given the look.


Starting now in 2018 Rolex is marking the 904L steel compound they use as “Oystersteel.” When you see that name it simply implies 904L, however Rolex’s specific mix of it. Rolex needs to ensure that its more costly steel watches which can cost thousands more than the Oyster Perpetual 39 have more complex case finishing  and that is valid. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 has a smooth, cleaned bezel, cleaned sides (case and arm band), and with the remainder of the case and wristband being brushed. This gives the watch a more energetic, specialized feel as I would like to think. While the quality is all Rolex, the case is probably as fundamental as possible pull off compared to other more costly watches delivered by the Swiss brand. For instance, instead of having a welded (appended) Rolex logo on the arm band deployant, the Oyster Perpetual has an engraved Rolex logo in the equivalent spot.

Both the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 and Explorer contain the in-house made programmed Rolex Caliber 3132 time-in particular (no date) development. The Air-King actually utilizes the more seasoned Caliber 3131, which has been overhauled with a touch more execution highlights in the type 3132. Working at 4Hz the development has around two days (48 hours) of force save. The development is obviously COSC Chronometer-confirmed and despite the fact that it isn’t one of Rolex’s fancier 32XX in-house developments, the 3132 flaunts a guaranteed +/ – 2 seconds out of each day precision. As a period just watch the Oyster Perpetual 39 dial is completely even and traditionally exquisite as a Rolex. Highlights, for example, the Rolex crown logo filling in as the 12 o’clock hour marker will engage numerous Rolex brand conservatives who need a straightforward day by day wear that is likewise a recognizable Rolex status symbol.

As an Oyster assortment watch, the 114300 case is water-impervious to 100m, has a screw-down crown, and is covered with a sapphire gem. With the expansion of the dark or white dial alternative, the Oyster Perpetual 39 out of nowhere has acquired significantly more interest for Rolex brand conservatives who don’t seek the brand for stylish tones yet rather immortal, moderate allure in the way a “red grape” (purple) dial can’t offer. I think it is amazing that Rolex makes the Oyster Perpetual 39 accessible as a more popular watch, yet for me the white or dark dials will be hitting home with most male purchasers, more so than the current dial colors.


I don’t consistently like depending on traditionalism to make item recommendations as it is enjoyable to see more individuals out there with purple and green watch dials. So, I realize white or dark watch dial decisions will in general be a touch all the more broadly engaging and therefore I think it was a smart thought for Rolex to present the 114300 Oyster Perpetual 39 operating at a profit high contrast dial variations. These likewise free the assortment up to more men who need to wear the Oyster Perpetual 39 as a smidgen even more a game watch. Cost for the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 reference 114300 watch (with any of the dials) is $5,700 USD. rolex.com
